DS Business Spotlight on:
Buy or Sell Avon!


Viveca Park, Independent Sales Representative

Describe your products or service: Avon is a well know company that caters to women. Avon continues to add new products which women enjoy. In addition to cosemetics, they also carry fragrances for both men and women, gifts for the entire family (including Dora The Explorer and Square Bob Sponge Pants ), clothing, jewelry, home decorating, and more. Right now they have an exciting new skin care product line which helps make the skin appear younger. It is called Anew. I have tried it, and it really makes a difference!

How much time is involved? Is this business kid and family friendly? How? The amount of time depends on you. It can be done online which requires no time committment other than customizing the Avon site they provide ($15 a month). It is kid and family friendly because you can be flexible with your hours.

What do you like best about your business? That I can grow this business online. I have other businesses online which I already market. It makes it easier to market additional ones.

What’s the hardest part about your business? I do not like to go out and sell--so I don't. I had business cards make and hand them out when appropriate.

How much does it cost initially? What is the refund policy? Ongoing expenses? Hostess gifts?
It costs $10 to get an assortment of Avon representative materials which are valued at more than $10. Refunds are made with no questions asked. Credit is given to the representative the following campaign after the product is returned and it is notated with your order. If you want to be an e-representative (to sell online to the whole country), it costs $15 a month ($7.50 a campaign)

How much commission or compensation do you receive? How do you advance to leadership? You receive a 20% commission. You recruit other representatives to advance to leadership.

What is a realistic show sales average or monthly sales average? This really depends on how much you go out and sell products. I just signed up a couple of months ago. Since I don't go and and sell, I really can't say. But I see others that do really well. Right now, I am my best customer because I like the products so much. My mother sold Avon when I was a child, and I sold Avon when I frst became a mother over 33 years ago.

Do you keep your own inventory and make deliveries? It isn't necessary to keep any inventory. However, I purchase some at demo prices and have a very small inventory. This way I can make more of a profit on the sales since you get these demo products around 40% off the normal price.

What’s the minimum requirement to stay active? I don't think there is one. Probably order brochures every month or so. I wasn't told of any except to pay for your orders. Of course, to remain an e-representative, you need to pay for your website each campaign.

What skills and experience is required? What kind of training do you receive when joining? There are training manuals, you have someone over you in which to ask questions, and there is lots of online training and information if you are an e-representative.

How are your products or services sold? Can you sell online? Can you advertise online? What are the restrictions for selling? You can sell online and sell in person. You can market online. Avon doesn't allow spam.

What else would you like people to know about your business? That you can make it as successful as you want to. You can win prizes as well as make money for your sales.
